Lovely EB, hoping you can help me as I sit here full of tears and sadness. My dear friends son has died in a tragic accident. I can't make it to the funeral (interstate, long trip away and I'm  currently too unwell). Im not religious but I know my friend is. So as you read this, if you can find a spot in your heart to say a prayer for him and my friend I would greatly appreciate it.
My heart is broken tonight from a life lost way to early.
Thankyou for taking the time to read.

I can do that!

hugs to you as well - being an unmanageable distance from a friend you want to support is the pits.

Thankyou all do much. It breaks my heart that she has to bury her son, noone should have to do it. He bought such joy to everyone around him. Life is just awful some times.

Thankyou all for your prayers. I'm just so sad, and I know my friend is just devestated. Life is just too cruel at the moment.
